Staying safe online - social networking

People may still be able to see things you’ve posted online, months or years later – and some people may use what you’ve posted online in ways you don’t like.

Think carefully before adding someone to your list of online friends or posting information that you wouldn’t be happy with your parent/carer or teacher seeing.

    Excerpt: It’s so easy to post online now – from your computer, digital camera or mobile, that often we do so without thinking. Sometimes we post things we wish we hadn’t and want to get them removed. Most sites will have a delete post option, but remember that once you have put something up – anyone can save it and re post.
